Review Summary

This ship is beautiful and we so enjoyed times of relaxation and renewing while we were sailing. This ship has the unique feature of having the most well balanced engine of any ship we have been on. With the calm seas, we often had to look outside to really see if we were still moving. There seemed to be absolutely no vibration what so ever when we were underway. And like we are trying to say with this picture, we wish our vacation could simply go on for ever. 


Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
This ship was the first one that was most accommodating for Allison's special dietary requests, even making special accommodations by allowing her to choose her selection the night before... We did run out of some good fruits simply because of the time of year in Asia...

Onboard Activities

I loved the flow rider and the gym and soaking in the hot tub

We love live performances and wished we could have seen more dancing routines... The Ice show was the most splendid of all we have ever seen and the musicians were outstanding....

Very dirty ... The visa situation in India was terrible and the immigration pre-screening process was atrocious.

The ride to town was terribly long at over an hour at high speeds. We used a taxi and shared with our friends and the taxi was willing to stay for us and brought us back. But there were a few times we were praying because this particular taxi driver was not the most alert and his car was not very safe.


5 out of 5
Disembarkation was so very smooth.
